What are you eating and drinking tonight?

If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

Hipster beer is like hipster coffee. A load of wank and to be avoided.
An interesting point of view, but I'm not actually sure what "hipster beer" is. There is just beer. It's been around in varieties and flavours for a good while. Some is good, some mediocre and some downright shit. As it always was. I'd happily swap a pint of Stones' for just about any other liquid possessing a head including gorilla piss. The "variety boxes" are a bit hit and miss, but for sure there's some good ones out there.

It's beardy types taking a drink, adding something obscure, calling it artisan and charging double for it. Same goes for food, cereal cafes etc etc.

When Tango and I were young hipsters were a style of trousers, so I had to look up the modern idiom. I find "the term hipster is primarily a pejorative -- an insult that belongs to the family of poseur, faker, phony, scenester, and hanger-on."

In the context of beer I note: "Half of the time hipsters are those who don't drink craft beer at all (only PBR, from a can of course), and the other half of the time they drink it exclusively. The hipster seems to just represent anything that people deem odd, or is a label to slap on someone trying a bit too hard to be unique." PBR being, I gather, Pabst Blue Ribbon, a potation I have never tried.

Live and learn.
